Cupcake Felt Purse

This is a cute little purse that would be good to teach our little girls to make. Paper and Strings gives you a pattern for a cupcake/ice-cream applique to put onto a purse.

Pug Dog Stitchery

For all the Pug Dog lovers....this really is an adorable stitchery.


I just typed in "free patterns" in the photo storage site FLICKR. You would be surprised how many came up. So take a look girls and see what you can find. Let me know if you find something you love as I haven't got all the time in the world to look at each and every one...but slowly does it...I will get there eventually. Just thought it worth mentioning.

Woody The Owl

OMG I just spotted a cute crocheted owl over at Roxycraft....who wants to make me one. I hear you all saying "me, me"....LOL....its soo cuhoot.....Woody the Owl can come live here any day.

There is also a main list of freebies to grab here.

Love Bug Stitchery

Who doesn't love a Love Bug? Pimp Stitch has a ladybug stitchery to grab if you do.

Wrislet clutch purse

I just found another wristlet purse over at U-handblog to make without using a zipper. This a cute way to add a bracelet to the purse to give it a bit more bling factor.

Lisa also has a lined grocery bag that can be folded up into a little clutch with a handle you can clip onto a wristlet.

Skirty Bag

Whip Up has a great idea to recycle those unwanted mini skirts. Not that I own one but the 2nd hand shop may have some to make this nifty looking bag.....a clever idea like the jeans bags that are used from recycled jeans.

Envelope style cosmetic purse

DIY Bag Lover has really cute way of making a cosmetic purse, especially if you don't like putting zippers in.

She also has a tutorial for a raggy tote bag....should be easy to make following the tutorial.


Spool has some tutorials for several things but I do like the wristlet she has to make. There are a couple of things made out of place-mats. Good way to re-purpose those place-mats you haven't been using. She has got all her tutorials in easy PDF form too which makes them great to download and save for a later day.

Free Quilting has a pattern you can make a travelers pillow I love this idea...when hubby and I travelled to the States for 3 months I took my own pillow..I just sleep better with my own pillow...I didn't even think to make a bag for it...I had to cart it under my arm.
This is a great idea.....stitch a greeting card. Prick and Stitch Is My Craft has some stitchery and instructions on how to make greeting cards using a simple stitchery for the front of the card. This sounds simple enough and would make a lovely change from the norm.

Folding Fabric

Okay so this is not a real fun subject but take a look at how neat and organised Sew Diva Diane is. How good would this be to have your fabric nicely folded and put away in your cupboard. She say she does this for fabric that is less than a yard. I think its a great idea but I don't know if I like the idea of how long it would take me to get my containers organised...aghhhh
